GCU has an excellent track record of engagement with the EU. Under the EU’s previous programme, FP7, a GCU-led project, A-Footprint, coordinated by Prof. Jim Woodburn, was declared a Flagship Project by the Commission for its outstanding achievements.

TEO is continually scoping new opportunities for researchers at GCU. We can help to look for partners, build a consortium and ensure that the proposal you submit aligns with the programme guidelines. If you are successful, we will advise you through the negotiation and preparation stage and help to ensure your project will be effectively managed.
